Marimekko's Unikko jar is decorated with Maija Isola's iconic floral pattern in cooling white hues. Fitted with a stylish cork lid, the elegant stoneware storage jar is perfect for all kinds of organizing: fill it with coffee beans or snacks and let it brighten up your kitchen décor or place it on your desk and keep your office supplies neat and tidy. The Unikko jar is part of Sami Ruotsalainen’s clean-lined Oiva tableware collection that provides effortless elegance to both casual and festive occasions.
The instantly recognizable Unikko pattern came about in 1964 after Armi Ratia, the founder of Marimekko, had announced in public that no floral fabrics would be made at Marimekko. However, textile designer Maija Isola was not one for rules or restrictions – in protest, she designed a complete collection of bold floral patterns. One of them was named Unikko, Finnish for ”poppy”, and it quickly became a favourite of Ratia, as well. Today, Unikko is one of Marimekko’s best-known patterns, and it adorns a variety of objects from fabrics and bed linen to Sami Ruotsalainen’s clean-lined Oiva tableware collection.
